The Best Canvas Shoes by Nike

1. Nike Air Force 1

The iconic Air Force 1 has captured attention since its inception in 1982. Equipped with Nike Air cushioning and a padded collar, the Air Force 1 was initially designed for performance basketball and has since become a streetwear staple.

To create a pair of canvas Air Force 1s that is all your own, choose from 12 colors or opt for a monochromatic look. You can choose a low-, mid- or high-top silhouette (the mid- and high-tops have ankle straps that are also customizable). You can also add up to three characters on the heel for a truly one-of-a-kind look.

Need inspiration? There are plenty of unique colorways already designed for you.

Designed by architect Tinker Hatfield and released in 1990, the Air Max 90 has gone from being a performance runner to a lifestyle sneaker mainstay.

Originally released in what is now considered the legendary “Infrared” colorway, these Air Max 90 canvas shoes can be customized in your favorite colors and finished off with a personalized message.

The low-cut silhouette features a rubber waffle outsole for durability, while the midsole houses Nike Air Technology for all-day comfort.

3. Nike Air Max 95

Inspired by human anatomy, the Sergio Lozano-designed Air Max 95 running shoe has become a cultural icon. The model’s signature wave overlays are modeled after skin, ribs and tendons.

The Air Max 95 is also the first member of the Air Max family to feature two air cushions in the forefoot, providing a comfortable fit and feel.

This highly-recognizable Nike model is also fully customizable in canvas. Choose from a variety of different colors for the laces, the Airbags and everything in between. You can also add a personalized message to the tongue.

4. Nike Blazer Low ‘77

First developed as a basketball shoe, the Nike Blazer has made its way into casual, lifestyle wear and even into the skateboarding world. Thanks to the shoe’s slim profile and simple design, the Blazer makes a versatile addition to any footwear collection.

This Nike classic can also be customized from the laces to the vulcanized midsole, with space for a personalized inscription on the heels. You can also create entirely white canvas shoes for a look that matches just about anything.

5. Nike SB

Nike SB canvas shoes provide breathability, a great fit and durable designs. Choose from a range of existing colorways or make your own. Either way, you’ll be turning heads on the street and in the skatepark.
